Short Poems

1. Glowing in the Dark
My candle’s flame flickers bright,
Within my hollowed pumpkin’s light.
Glowing in the dark, it casts
A spooky scene that doesn’t last.

2. The Grinning Face
With triangle eyes and toothy grin,
My jackolantern’s face draws you in.
But beware of this spooky décor,
As it may scare you to your core.

3. A Corny Rhyme
Oh pumpkin, oh pumpkin, big and round,
Your orange hue is quite profound.
With a knife and scoop, we make you hollow,
Then light a candle to cause a glow.

4. Halloween Harvest
In fields of orange, green, and brown,
Pumpkins grow both large and round.
We pick them soon, with great delights,
To carve and light on Halloween nights.

Medium Poems

The Twisted Smile
A candle flickers within my skull,
A grin twisted, eerie and dull,
I’ll sit here still, all through the night,
Greeting ghouls and ghosts with delight.
My flames they dance and cast a glow,
As visitors come, and then they go,
‘Till dawn will come and snuff me out,
A jack-o-lantern, without a doubt.

The Pumpkin King
I am the Pumpkin King, don’t you forget,
My throne a front porch, my crown a lit silhouette,
As trick or treaters come, young and old,
I’m there to scare and to behold.
With my grin, I’ll light their way,
Ensuring they’ll have the best Halloween day,
For I am the King of this haunted scene,
A jack-o-lantern, the Halloween dream.

The Witches’ Brew
Hear me crackle, hear me cackle,
I am the brew of witches’ tackle,
My seeds and pulp, brewed to perfection,
A potion to cause pure Halloween affection.
I’m a jack-o-lantern, you see,
A symbol of this mystic holiday,
So come and enjoy the sight of me,
And wish a happy Halloween, I say.

Long Poems

The Haunted Pumpkin Patch

In the midst of a dark and eerie night,
I stumbled upon a peculiar sight,
A field of pumpkins, all in a row,
With flickering candles aglow.

The wind howled and made the stems sway,
I felt every nerve in my body fray,
For these pumpkins seemed to have a stare,
Piercing my soul with a fiery glare.

I took a step closer, heart pounding fast,
As I approached, it felt like the past,
Haunted memories, of a Halloween past,
A time when these pumpkins had been cast.

One by one, they emerged from the ground,
Rotting and seeping, yet making no sound,
I felt a chill run down my spine,
As if these pumpkins were all just fine.

But then I heard a cackling laugh,
It echoed and echoed and wouldn’t pass,
And soon enough, the pumpkins came alive,
With grinning faces that seemed to jive.

Their eyes were glowing, like embers of coal,
Their smiles twisted, out of control,
I realized then, in that terrifying time,
These pumpkins were cursed, beyond rhyme.

For many Halloweens, they’d seen their share,
Of ghosts and goblins, and creatures that scare,
But these pumpkins had a vengeance to reap,
For they’d been carved and discarded, to sleep.

Now, they roam this field, in a haunting trance,
Taking revenge, with a devilish dance,
And as I stood there, trembling with fear,
I knew I had to leave, or never come near.

For these pumpkins, they are not just a decoration,
But a warning, of a cursed creation,
And if you dare to walk where they roam,
Beware, beware of the haunted pumpkin home.
